Some of you may have wondered what do Christians believe when they make a confession of their historical and biblical faith during a Worship Service.
What they believe is stated in the Apostles’ (the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ) Creed that contains the major teachings (doctrines) of the Christian Church that demonstrate the identity and unity of the Church.
The following is the Apostles’ Creed: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, Born of the Virgin Mary: Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell: The third day He rose again from the dead: He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty: From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the One Holy Universal Christian Church; the Communion of Saints: The Forgiveness of sins: The Resurrection of the body; and the Life everlasting.”
Volumes have been written to understand these major Christian doctrines. If you want a more detailed explanation, I encourage you to talk with me personally, or you can go to Google on your computer and search “Understanding the Apostles’ Creed.” May God bless you with a meaningful understanding of the Apostles’ Creed that will draw you closer to your God.
Love you all…. Your Chaplain… John Szilvasy
